This Lamborghini Aventador is a tribute to the rare Miura Roadster

Aventador, a model of Lamborghini, was recently produced for the very last time. This pays homage to a special and unique car from the sixties known as the Miura Roadster and was born out of this tradition. Earlier this year, fifteen examples of the flagship car of Sant'Agata Bolognese, the Aventador, was reported missing in the Atlantic when the Felicity Ace caught fire.

The cars were intended for the last buyers of the flagship car from Sant'Agata Bolognese and were supposed to be delivered to them. Lamborghini needed to produce new cars due to the loss of up to 85 cars, which were mostly Urumodels.

In September, the last Lamborghini Aventador was presented as a result of this. Lamborghini has released a whole gallery of pictures of the "last of its kind", the Ultimae Roadster, which was produced by the Ad Personam department and was only shown on the production line of their Italian plant.

The pictures show the car next to its source of inspiration, and now Lamborghini has released the complete gallery of photos of the car. The V12 supercar is painted in Azzuro Flake Blue as it pays homage to the Miura Roadster, one of the most beautiful roadsters ever built.

Presented at the Brussels Motor Show in April 1968, Bertone's unique car was never given the "green light" for production, despite the fact that it was displayed at the show. There is still a spirit of the Miura P400 Roadster alive in the Aventador, and the car is adorned with details that reference the classic Miura P400 Roadster, including details from Grigio Liqueo and Nero Aldebaran in the lower part of the car.

It's the same story in the interior, which is covered in Bianco Leda white leather with Nero Aldebaran black details around the headrest, reminiscent of the prototype from the sixties. The dashboard is covered in Nero Ade Alcantara and features Bianco Leda thread, as well as the Miura badge that can also be found on the outside.

For those wondering what happened to the unique Miura Roadster, this car was sold to the International Lead and Zinc Research Organization. The new owner has replaced all replaceable parts with zinc or lead components. Also, the car was painted olive green and got a green interior.

It was also given the new name ZN 75 and served as an exhibition car. It was used for promotional purposes all over the world and "visited" numerous design centers. It changed hands several more times and was restored to original specification in 2008, and was subsequently exhibited at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in a fully restored condition. He took second place in the Lamborghini class.
